TWO DESPERATE BURGLARS , They Badly Use Up Sheriff Bampaon of Chaidron , Neb , THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. A Fall Fledged flow In the llnnks oftho Omaha Bnse Unit Club Which Tlirc.itcns DIs- Integrntlou. Desperate Hurglara. Sheriff J. T. Sampson , of Chadron , Neb. , lies in his room ut the Can field house , a badly used up man , and thereby hangs a tain , or a romance , of no incon siderable interest. Sometime last January the general store of John Jones , at Henery is. , was burglarized anil $16,000 , which had been kept in an old dilapidated safe , was carried off. Suspicion fell upon one Frank Hall , a man of unsavory record , who mysteri ously disappeared from his wonted haunts about this time , and af tor assiduous work of months by skilled detectives , a sort of n clew was obtained locating him near Chadron , Neb. John Jones and Sheriff Sampson had been quondam friends , and knowing that Sampson was sheriff of the county in which Chadron is situate , wrote to him acquainting him with the facts of the burglary , and also sending him a descrip tion of the alleged burglar , together with the information that a $1,600 reward was upon his head. This was eight weeks ago , and Sheriff Sampson at once commenced a search for the man , and on Sunday lost traced Hall to Omaha. He lost no time and came down hero Monday , und soon got onto the fact that his man was In the city , but industrious search failed to find him. -ater - in the day , however , through some agency or other , ho learned that a man answering Hall's ' description had been seen during the afternoon in the vicinity of tlio saw mill at Florence , four miles up ho river , and yesterday morning ho went iio there. Inquiry at the mill developed the fact hat two men , ono of them tallying with Hall's description , had been seen to enter the brush an hour before a short distance above the mill. Greatly elated over the prospect of shortly overhauling his man , Sheriff Sampson hurried on to the point indica ted where the two strangers had penetra ted the woods , and followed in. Ho had hardly gene ono hundred yards until he came right on to ilall , whom ho instantly iccognizod , and his companion , a small man , sitting on a log. They both arose , and Hall said : "I know you Sampson , and I want you to understand that you can't take me unless you take mo dead. " Sampson replied , tolling him not to got excited until ho knew what ho wanted , but just here he received a crushing blow from behind from some kind of u weapon In the hands of the smaller man , which knocked him headlong and unconscious into the bushes. How long he remained insensible he had no menni of ascertaining , but it could only have been for a brief period , for upon reviving , he saw the two men pulling across thu river in a skiff well on to the opposite shore. Upon gaining his feet the sheriff real ized that ho had not only boon knocked in the head but had been subjected to other injuries , as there wore terrible pains in his chest and sides , and on * ) leg was so badly crippled as to hardly sus tain his weight. He made his way back to the saw mill aa expeditiously as his hurts would permit of , whore ho gave two of the hands $20 to follow the fugi tives across the river in u boat and mark them down if possible , informing them that they might expect additional com pensation if they.learned any thing , by re porting to him at the Camield house , Omnha. Aa yet , no intelligence has ar rived from these two men. The whole affair on its face , it must bo acknowledged , has a rather ( nicer IOOH , and the story is of a decided ichthyologi- cal ilovor. But Sheriff Sampson , as a dead square man is vouched for by numcr > pus acquaintances hero in Omaha , and it is only due that his story be accepted. But why an old experienced sheriff should follow a couple of desperate burglars like this man Hall and his com panion unquestionably are , into a lonely wood , single handed and unarmed , save with a pair of handcuffs , is one of these things uo follow can iind out. TUB OBIAHA AIjIi CLUB. Several Alleged I'layera Kick Up a Huni | > u8. Yesterday was salary day for the mem bers of the Omaha base ball club. It also developed the reason why the club has been so unsuccessful an interne- cone war. The trouble came to an out and out break while the members wore drawing their pay. It will be recollected that O'Lcary was fined by Manager Philbin , ostensibly for not playing ball. As n matter of fact the fine wan for uainfc obscene language to the manager. Walsh , wbo was formerly captain of the nine , assessed a line of | 5 against Biulei for refusing to coach in Deuvei when so ordered. Yesterday O'Leary'f $50 fine was deducted , and so was Bader'i $5. Each expected that the flue would not be enforced. WJion O'Lcury fount that it went , ho grew abusive and cursed Walsh in the foulest manner. Walsh re plied after the same kind and Badoi joined in with O'Lcary. Finally the twc latter included Mcssett and Dwyer , whc were standing near , in the general tirade of abuse. Atlairs became more mixed when Kreymeyor and others sided IE against Walsh , Dwycr and Messett. II almost reached the point of a free fight , and showed that there lias been ill feuint between the club mombcrs for some time Manager Philbin is reticent , but it i ; stated on good authority that the clul will bo entirely reorganixcd. Reorganisation should have been car ried out sonic time ago. The manage ment of Philbin has been generally good and the only point upon which he hai laid himself open to criticism is in the fact that he has been too lenient. O'Lcary who is supposed to be the crack pitcher has cost the club more games than ain other player in the nine. He is ill natured. and it is dawning upon the pub Ho mind that he is not nearly the playei that either Bartson or Henly la. Theii work is generally good O'Leary's ' is ex ccrablo. Rourko was released Monday He made a good record with Uuluth las year , but lie hr.s been playing ver.i poorly. If his work on third has boon s < poor that tie deserved release , that o Swift on second lias been so rottei that ho should have been chased from tin position with a bat. It is due to him t < say , lur.YiTvur , that ho had no part in tin dibjirace-ful rupture yesterday afternoon In fact , Dwycr has been the only redeem ing feature of the inllold. The ouUlolil 1ms been good. Mossott in right am Genins in middle have playml ball at al times. Bader has worked excellently and at all times played ball for all then w&s in it. Ilia playing has been market by brilliancy. Krchmoyer has dom poorly on the whole in hi work bordnd the bat. If tin result of yesterday's ruction ia to causi tbu reloasj of the llstliss players and i strengthening of.tiTo nine in those points wherein it is * } } . Alnfully wonk , it will have proved a goog thing. Thou Man ager Philbin < * liotild draw the reins tightly and compfll ; oyerv man to play ball when ho goes Into the field or abide the consequences1. Then Omaha may take an occasianal game leastwise if it doesn't it will nol bo through want of effort. ContriMtj > ri ! Consult.

When the latter gentleman viw asked by a reporter for the BKK if ho report was true ho said there was lothlng in It. lie had hoard thu rumor ilinself but thought it hiid probably orlg- niiled from a chance remark by Mr. timball that he was tired of the railroad business.

A rlund of his who is in a portion to speak vlth force on thu subject says that when 10 was Inaugcrated the president had Kti.OOO in hard ca.sh. His four political campaigns in which lie was elected sun- cesstully to the shrievalty of Erie iininty to the position of mayor of Uill'alo , governor of Now York mil president of the United States , cost lini , in all , in round figures , $20,000. It : est a great deal more than this to elect ilni to these various olllcos , of course , jut $20,000 covers the amount which Cleveland himself paid out. With the fM,000 ( , therefore that ho had when ho entered the white house , the $100,000 which ho will save , and the fortune of "us wife , President Cleveland will have ill the neighborhood of $200,000 as a for- lime upon which to bcirin life anew when .10 leaves the white house. Carefully nvested this would yield him tin income sufficient to take care of him very com fortably for the rest of his days. "In what is this money invested ? " in quired your correspondent. " 1 don't think the president has any in vestments other than bank deposits. Ho was never of a speculative turn of mind , and never engaged in speculative enter prise. 1 think the great portion of his money , at least , is deposited in bunks at Albany and Buffalo , with , perhaps , sonic n New York , and 1 do not believe that Jlevol.imi is likely to invest it anywhere n the hope of securing big dividends , unless ho is absolutely satisfied that his nvestment will bo safe. When ho dies ) is wife will have , perhaps , $20,000 from life inbiiranco policies to add to his sav ings.
